The benefits of colocation

Using your own hardware in a UK datacentre has many benefits over renting processing time in a typical cloud scenario. Using your own hardware provides the full private cloud offering with all the benefits that come with it. It can be seen as the best of both worlds - A true cloud offering but with the dedicated hardware, security benefits and fixed pricing you expect from typically on-premises hardware.

Public Cloud Vs. Private CloudPrivate cloud explained

A private cloud environment is a type of cloud computing that offers many benefits to organisations that need more control, security and customisation over their data and applications. Unlike a public cloud, which is shared by multiple users, a private cloud is dedicated to a single organisation and can be hosted on-premises or by a third-party provider. Some of the benefits of a private cloud environment are:

  • Enhanced security and compliance: A private cloud allows organisations to implement their own security policies and standards, as well as comply with specific regulations that may not be met by a public cloud provider. A private cloud also reduces the risk of data breaches, cyberattacks and unauthorized access by limiting the exposure of sensitive data to external parties.

  • Greater flexibility and scalability: A private cloud enables organisations to customise their infrastructure, software and services to meet their specific needs and preferences. A private cloud also allows organisations to scale up or down their resources as needed, without affecting the performance or availability of other users.

  • Improved performance and reliability: A private cloud can deliver faster and more consistent performance than a public cloud, as it eliminates the latency and bandwidth issues that may arise from sharing resources with other users. A private cloud also ensures higher availability and uptime, as it can leverage redundant and backup systems to prevent downtime and data loss.
